NEWTON’S METHOD FOR MINIMUM


##Newton's Method to find
##the minimum of the function F(x)=(x-2)^4-9
##with the initial guess xmin=1.0
##Constants and initializations
xmin=[]; ##The empty array of x that minimizes the F(x)
xmin(1)=1.0; ##Initial value of the xmin
Fmin=[]; ##Minimum values of F(x)
x=0.0:0.1:4.0; ##Only for plotting purposes
F=[]; ##Our examined Function evaluated on x-space
Fp=[]; ##First derivative of F(x) wrt x
Fpp=[]; ##Second derivative o F(x) wrt x
NSteps=50; ##Step number of iteration
##Algorithm
for n=1:NSteps
Fmin(n)=(xmin(n)-2)^4-9;
Fp(n)=4*(xmin(n)-2)^3;
Fpp(n)=12*(xmin(n)-2)^2;
xmin(n+1)=xmin(n)-Fp(n)/Fpp(n);
Fmin(n+1)=(xmin(n+1)-2)^4-9;
endfor
printf("x*, at which F(x) is minimum, is %1.6f\n",xmin(n+1))
printf("Minimum of F(x) is %1.6f\n",Fmin(n+1))
F=(x-2).^4-9;
